NHRA Midwest Nationals: Visual Cues

The ripple effect of the Houston Hurricane savagery found me stepping to help Rob Geiger at Geiger Media Global whose home and business were flooded out. This meant I went to the races watching not through my usual photog lens and storyteller hunter, but with the perspective of a PR person, guided by Geiger’s very specific agenda that would ensure his clients would not experience any interruption in service.

As a motorsports photojournalist for the past 30 …

In September 1997, it was a rag tag bunch of dirty Brits I met on the Black Rock Desert. It was …

Bonneville Salt Flats recognized for Lifetime Achievement

  In a break with tradition, the Lifetime Achievement Award, in the 2016 International Historic Motoring Awards, in association with Octane magazine and EFG private bank, went to a place and the events held there, rather than to a person.
